Supreme Commander - Strategy Boot Camp, Day Two

Defeating the early offensive or rushing player:

The polar opposite of the "turtle," early offensive players who like to rush with Tier 1 units can be a real pain. The simplest solution to these annoying fleas is to tech up quickly to Tier 2 or 3. The disparity in abilities between unit Tiers will virtually guarantee that you'll be able to stave off those kinds of annoying early rushes. Simple and effective, just the way we like it.
